Brexit? Don't Panic !

I'm stocking up loo-rolls for Brexit
I know I've bought more than I ought;
I heard on the telly the shops might run out
I don't want my husband caught short !

I've bought extra tins of sliced peaches
There's plenty of room in the shed.
I've large stocks of Spam and strawberry jam -
I'm keeping them under the bed.

There are huge bags of flour in the lobby
They're next to the pasta and rice :
I couldn't store those in the outhouse
I fear they'd be eaten by mice !

The grandchildren like peanut butter
I'd better get in a few jars;
I've heard they're on offer at Tesco's
I'll drive down and fill up the car.

There's lots of green veg in the freezer
Sliced carrots and parsnips galore;
There's salmon and hake and fillets of steak
I won't need to shop at the store.

And so I'm all ready for Brexit
The bulk of my hoarding is done.
Enough is enough, if I purchase more stuff
We will have to move in with our son !

Clever, witty poem, Aida - it gave me a much needed laugh :laugh: I could almost hear Pam Ayres reciting those words as I read them!
Very good.

I’ve been busy stocking up on wine from Italy and Spain and Champagne from France ...
but I do that every Christmas! (;;) :xtree: :xsanta:

I was a member of a poetry group until recently. We used to perform at local events.

Loved your funny poem Aida, thoughts of stocking up are on
many people's minds at the moment.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
